Jr-Sr High School Sign Restoration Project is Complete!
Spearheaded by the Class of 1970, with assistance from the Class of 1980, the Alumni Association and others, Lake George Alumni restored the iconic Jr-Sr High School sign at the front of the building on Canada Street. The sign is often featured in photographs of the school, and in news and sports articles in local and regional papers. Thank you to all the Alumni and friends who donated to the restoration project. Special thanks to Robert Wilcox ’70, Bob Mason ’70, Sally Hawley ’80, and Jr-Sr High School Principal Fran Cocozza. The work was completed in time for graduation by Ian Gifford of Gifford’s Masonry
